Turning Inwards – Brining Meditation into your daily life | 26 March | Yoga Way, Newlands | R300
This workshop will begin with a little-known yogic relaxation called “Shithali Karana”, and end with the basics of meditation practice as taught Aditi’s tradition. You will learn how to sit, establish a healthy breath pattern and move your awareness from the outside in – all the tools you need to establish a daily meditation routine.
Prana Vidya: an ancient and deeply moving practice | 27 March | Yoga Way, Newlands | R300
In this workshop we will explore the ancient science of Prana Vidya (Knowledge of Prana) through a series of asana aimed at bringing emotional healing. Targeting the pelvis and the first two chakras, we will use principles of Prana Vidya to bring lightness of being and vitality to ourselves and our asana practice.
Aditi has established Yogalaya – platform that provides traditional teachings in a modern format. “As I travelled through the Himalayas and met unknown yogis and little-known masters, I realized that their wisdom and teachings were much needed in the world today.
Having been a part of the corporate world for twelve years and then one day realizing that the external success had brought me no fulfilment at all, I moved to the Himalayas for a couple of months to work as a volunteer and study Yoga. Yogalaya is only a small way to enable the sharing of my experience and learning.”
